About

Since 1992, RPAP has matched practising and future physicians with rural Alberta communities.

The Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan

RPAP / Health Workforce for Alberta is an independent, not-for-profit company funded by the Alberta Ministry of Health. Established in 1991 by the Government of Alberta, RPAP supports the ongoing efforts of Alberta’s rural physicians, their families and communities to improve the quality of rural health care.

Since its inception, RPAP has implemented an integrated and comprehensive series of initiatives to enhance the education, attraction, recruitment and retention of physicians for rural practice.

 

RPAP employs the following strategies supporting rural Alberta communities:

  • Education for present and future rural Alberta physicians
    RPAP supports students who are considering or pursuing a career in medicine; and ensures practising rural Alberta physicians have the training and resources they need, regardless of where they live.
  • Rural Alberta community physician recruitment support
    RPAP works with provincial government departments, local and provincial agencies, and partner groups to support recruitment of physicians for rural Alberta communities.
  • Rural Alberta community physician attraction and retention support
    RPAP offers a variety of resources to help individuals start and manage rural community physician attraction and retention committees.

History

Since its formation in 1992, the Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP) has endeavoured to address the professional and lifestyle issues confronting physicians in rural practice, as well as those of physicians contemplating rural practice. The common thread over the intervening years has been innovation and adaptive change as circumstances at many levels have evolved.
